Together with heinzelsales, Koehler wants to work on securing the future business success of single-sided coated papers with barrier functions and sealing ability. 


The papers for flexible packaging are used in a wide variety of products. These include chocolate and muesli bars ; pudding and granola; sugar sticks ; bags for instant soups, rice, and pet food; ice cream cones ; banderoles and lids for yogurt cups ; and much more. 


The Koehler Paper Group is not only one manufacturer of specialty papers, but is also moving into the field of papers for flexible packaging with its new PM8 paper machine. The aim is to replace nonrecyclable plastics with paper and recyclable or compostable composites.

With its four locations, Koehler produces more than 500 000 tons of various specialty papers and, at the same time, operates various power plants in order to be able to generate 100 percent of the energy for paper production from renewable sources in the medium term.

Part of the company is a large research and development department that, among other things, has developed the first thermal paper approved for food contact. One of the current tasks is the development of functional surfaces that have the barrier properties to replace plastics in packaging.

heinzelsales (Wilfried Heinzel AG) is the Heinzel Group’s global sales network. In partnership with pulp and paper producers, heinzelsales sells pulp, paper, and cardboard in more than 100 countries worldwide.
